Today I put together my fifth set from Folded Space, FS-SCY+, which purports to organize my box of Scythe: Rise of Fenris and also Scythe: The Wind Gambit. I was a bit skeptical but let’s see how it turned out.
First, I found two surprises inside the box: a Folded Space six-sided die, and two sheets of stickers, one for the Folded Space Part IV: Scythe that I just completed and one for this new Fenris organizer.
— the Folded Space d6
— the two sheets of stickers
The stickers appear to fit into the boxes something like this:
— a sticker inside one of the typical rectangular boxes
I got to work gluing the organizers together. Most were pretty standard, but there were two very unique pieces. Overall, it took a bit less than 90 minutes to glue the set together.
— some completed boxes. Check out those two weird ones at the top
Now, let’s be clear, my game box of Rise of Fenris wasn’t exactly in bad shape.
— my Rise of Fenris game box with the lid off. Clearly not a horror show.
— the bottom of my Rise of Fenris box. Note that because we have only completed Episodes 1 thru 4, there are still unrevealed boxes (Box D being the largest unrevealed box)
So, I started unpacking my box of Fenris and my Wind Gambit box. This was complicated by the fact that my gaming group has not yet opened all the “hidden” material. So, I could only file game components that were revealed already.
— filling the bins with game components
— and now we see what the strange bins were for–> the airships! How cool!
Once I filled all the bins, I started putting them into the game box. Note that the Wind Gambit box is completely discarded (just like the Invaders from Afar box in the last Scythe Folded Space project).
— the bottom layer in the box
— the box with the top layer set in.
Of course, I couldn’t put any unrevealed components into bins, so I have some leftover cardboard boxes that do not fit into the game box.
— my leftover unrevealed content. I will just set these aside for when we have to open them.
I really liked how the airships fit into this build. The bins that hold them are very sturdy and should hold up over time. The only drawback is that once again, the box lid doesn’t fully close.
— the box lid doesn’t completely close
It’s a small annoyance, and maybe once I punch out all the pieces on the cardboard sheets this might go away (although I doubt it). I am not sure why both the Scythe builds have this same problem, but it is a bit of a bummer.
